Well, been in and out of hospital plenty-this is about operation number 4 or 5-they took out my large intestine (which is why I'm called Hollowbelly!) What I like about this song is the literal truth of the lyrics-it went down just like I tell it. The last verse might need explaining-I dont know what the night nurse was thinking when she said what she said-I was single at the time and looked very, very bad.Still, all nurses are angels and I should know-that one must just have been thinking out loud that night!
WELL, HERE IT COMES AGAIN/MY CLOTHES TOO BIG FOR ME/THEY SAID THEY GOT NO CURE/BUT I CANT STAND NO MORE SO I/WENT DOWN TO A+E/LAY ACROSS 4 PLASTIC CHAIRS/THIS TIME IT JUST MIGHT BE/THE TIME I DONT GET OUT OF HERE..JESUS-I THINK I'M COMING HOME.
THERES A MAN IN THE GLASS/I BARELY RECOGNISE/HE DOESNT LOOK LIKE ME/BUT THERES SOMETHING ROUND THE EYES/THEY PUT ME IN A ROOM/I MADE A DEAL WITH GOD/THEY'LL CUT ME UP AGAIN/BUT IM TIRED/IM SO TIRED..JESUS I THINK IM COMING HOME..
SHE CAUGHT ME ON A LOW/ON THE WARD AT 3A.M./I ASKED HER FOR A JAB/SHE COULDNT FIND NO FAT ON ME SHE SAID/"WHO'S GONNA WANT YOU NOW?"/I DIDNT MAKE SOUND/SOMETHING TICKLED MY EARS/AFTER I LAY BACK DOWN....JESUS I THINK IM COMING HOME.
